At The Britleys for Toddlers, we take pride in being more than your average toddler care provider. We offer a robust children’s etiquette program and a unique curriculum that intellectually stimulates all our students, ages 1-3 years old.

Executive function and self-regulation skills are the mental processes that enable us to plan, focus attention, remember instructions, and juggle multiple tasks successfully. When children have opportunities to develop these functions and self-regulation skills, individuals and society experience lifelong benefits. These skills are crucial for learning and development. Children are not born with these skills—they are born with the potential to develop them. Having adults who can provide the support that children need to build these skills at home, in early care and education programs, and in other settings they experience regularly is one of society’s most important responsibilities.

Toddler Care In Washington, DC

Following the Montessori method, we encourage independence, self-motivation, and decision-making skills. Built upon a strong foundation of academic excellence, we nurture your child’s social, emotional, physical, and personal development. Children are in their most impressionable stage during these early years.

Our etiquette lessons plus our unique curriculum is an ideal introductory level course for this age group to learn proper manners, etiquette, social skills and table manners. We designed the lessons to foster this age group’s growth in a positive learning environment with an ideal combination of instruction, practice, role-playing; and character building lessons specifically for them. Our ultimate goal at The Britleys is to teach the children skills they can take with them to preschool, kindergarten, and beyond.

Far From Daycare

The Britleys for Toddlers is much more than just a daycare — we are an educational facility built to help toddlers grow and learn. We aim to give the children in our care a place where they can explore their creativity while becoming well-rounded human beings. Our ultimate goal is to teach children skills they can take with them to preschool, kindergarten, and beyond.
